The process of compressing and delivering videos to devices is known as video transcoding. Today people watch videos on just about every device from TVs to mobile phones. Videos being delivered to these devices need to be compressed into a smaller fasting loading file size while losing very little quality.
How Video Transcoding Works
If you have ever taken a video and tried to upload the file into a social media platform it may be too big. In general, HD video can take up to 18 Gb of storage for just 60 seconds at 1920×1080. Also, the video needs to be converted into a format most devices can play, like an MP4. Furthermore, reducing your video and converting it to a good format is similar to the first steps of transcoding.
Ideally, the video content is uploaded and formatted into a Server. When the user selects the content on their device, the video is then passed through the network to their device. If transcoded properly the video will play on your device in the best possible solution. There are other factors that take effect such as the bandwidth and speed of the network as well.
CDN Helps With Delivery
A CDN (Content Delivery System) can really help with transcoding and faster delivery of your videos. The CDN can store the video information from the server making videos load faster for your users. Think of it as a middle man that holds your content for you for faster delivery. When it comes to content delivery and broadcast networks, look no further than the experts at Johnston Howse.
